They are self-described as a restaurant with "big things from a small kitchen" and I have to agree! Cascata Bistro has been offering daily curbside menus in our time of social distancing! They understand our need to keep ourselves and others healthy while eating delicious food. Think I'm kidding? Listen to some of their past curbside offerings: Fish n Chips, Mussels, Guinness Lamb Stew and Sheperd's Pie. Don't forget about their entire online menu too!
Recommendation: Guinness Lamb Stew
Our favourite gourmet BBQ food truck turned restaurant is answering our pulled pork taco cries with curbside pickup. Their curbside menu has the pick-me-up you are looking for. Choose between The Big Pig, Dirty Southern Love, Pull Pork Tacos, Pulled Port Poutine or Fried Chicken Poutine. If you don't feel like leaving your house, they also offer delivery. Just give them a call with your order!
Recommendation: Fried Chicken Poutine
This cafe and general store have everything you could need to social distance yourself - including curbside pickup. Cherry Birch General offers coffee, tea, fresh-baked treats and store full of Canadian retail products. You can DM, call or email your curbside order today! As a bonus, they have teamed up with East Hamilton Cheese Co. These two small, local businesses will coordinate joint delivery to you.
Recommendation: Mini Egg Nanaimo Bars
Let the weekend morning brunches continue! Whether you want their classic Champagne Pancakes (topped with gold flakes) or a Brulee Grapefruit you can simply order with their Curbside Pick Up. Order by phone, pay online or at your car and pick up your food on the curb. The process was so quick that my Marshmallow Vanilla Chantilly on my pancakes was still intact when I got home. Get those mimosas ready!
Recommendation: Blue Moon Hotcakes
Have you ever thought "Can I walk through a drive-thru window"? The answer at Donut Monster is YES! Donuts are prepacked in assorted half dozen boxes. Their delicious donuts aside, it is their unique approach to ensuring social distancing that gives them the number 1 spot. Customers will follow the Pac Man trail on the curbside and line up on the fruit ... which is two meters apart. Safe, socially responsible and delicious.
Recommendation: Cinnamon Spice donut
